Make sure to check out the bedroom on a converted bus that houses 9 people

The Millers' unique skoolie journey started in 2009. Jeff and Missy were planning a vacation but struggled to find a place that could accommodate their large family.
So they put on their thinking caps... and the idea of a bus conversion sprang up. Within weeks the couple became the proud owners of a Blue Bird International school bus, which they converted into a traveling home for themselves and their seven (yes, seven) children.

Fast forward to the present, as the Millers have decided to convert two school buses more. While they're busy on their new feats, why don't you join us in exploring the bus that started it all:
Red and white are the colors of choice for this skoolie, known as the Discovering Us Bus.
If you look closely on the front and side, you'll see that the bus's identity is well ingrained on its exteriors.
The open-plan interiors are efficient and sound--ideal for a cozy family getaway.
On both sides of the living area, shelves and clever storage pieces keep everything tidy.
Admittedly, the kitchen cabinets weren't quite completed when this picture was taken, but you still get a good idea of this home's culinary acumen.
Don't you just love the bus' wooden finish? Straight ahead is the bedroom's entrance, but tucked on the side (next to the fridge) is the area we'll be visiting next.
Which is, of course, the discreet bathroom. From this angle, the area seems only to cover your bare essentials...
...but actually, the family uses this area to keep some of their clothes as well as everyday bathroom supplies.
Bunk beds keep the kids nice and comfy--even in the bumpiest of bus rides.
Each bunker comes with its own personal touches, like shelving compartments for the kids' books and relics...

...or something as simple as a set of hooks to hang up their jackets.
The family's journey has had a fair share of ups and downs, but Missy, Jeff and company continue to inspire like-minded blog readers with their wisdom. Needless to say, it'll be interesting to see where the Millers' next conversion project will take them.
